Building Bridges: Your Community and Labor Report National Edition 27:58 Produced by Ken Nash and Mimi Rosenberg **************************** Woodlawn Cemetery Alive with Union Protests With Chis Silvera, Secretary Treasurer Local 808, Teamsters And Local 808 Woodlawn Members - the Band of Brothers . Todd Brown . Alex Coss . Enrique Coss
Landscapers at the Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx, where 6 Mayors and jazz legends like Celia Cruz, Miles Davis and Duke Ellington are buried, protested at the cemetery with union and community allies from throughout NYC . Management plans to contract their jobs out to a private landscaping firm unless they take a 35% pay cut. Local 808 Secretary-Treasurer Chris Silvera called the proposed outsourcing âan act of vengeance against the workers for choosing a fighting union to represent them.â It's the latest battle for the workers, "The Band of Brothers", who for several years have lodged complaints about racism by supervisors. Then in October, the workers voted overwhelmingly to switch their union affiliation to Local 808. ************************************** please email Building Bridges if you are broadcasting our National Edition.
